How a beached statue sparked a unique Easter Ritual 

This is an article from Radio National Australia (RNE equivalent) about Easter in the island of Flores, Indonesia. The article is focused on the impact a statue of Mary has had on the religious beliefs of the locals. I attach a few questions below. We can discuss on Tuesday.

According to the article:

Where did the statue of Mary come from and did it transform the island’s belief system?
Have other statues washed up on the island?
When is the ‘pinnacle’ of semana santa? And what happens?
Does the Catholic Church support the local’s belief in Animism?
